We are able to begin creating with focus as a new project develops. Today we were tinkering with fall: apples, walnuts, lovage, concord8 vinegar syrup (concentr8) and a super creamy gorgonzola. The spoonful of cheese is the foundation for the fan of honeycrisp apple. We zested several walnuts over them both, hiding them underneath like a large pile of leaves. We sliced lovage thinly to deliver intense fragrant notes. We mixed the concord8 syrup with olio verde for an autumnal dressing. The dish is rich and clean. It has bitterness tempered by sweet acidity.
